Merry Christmas

Indeed Christmas has become commercialized the fat dude in a suit, merchandising, merchandising, partying, and more merchandising. Yes of course some greedy person always has to come in and spoil a good thing. But that doesn't mean we have to let it overpower the real meaning. Christmas is about pausing to recognize a special event in history whether you agree or not on the time it happened. It's about celebrating a figure that represents LOVE. Christmas should be about love, giving, family, friends and togetherness. It's about not so much about receiving or giving the perfect gift as it is about seeing your loved one smile because you took time out your busy schedule to get something you thought they would like. To me this is what Christmas is about. So for a little while forget about the bills, the recession, the diet and the pile of work you left at your office. Take time to give thanks for this season for the people around you and the love they give.

From me to you I say thanks for the love, God bless and Merry Christmas xoxo

I wanna write for Cosmo!

Oh look she's in a writing mood!
Ok so lately I've been....well not that lately...but I've been reading magazines more online mostly. What's with all the dumb ass articles that fill women magazines? And where can i sign up to write for one? I wanna get paid for pulling things out my ass! Seriously who made Katerina Isinberg (if you exist hun no offense) an expert on how to make a man happy? Has she dated a large enough variety of men to be able to know how every possible man in the world operates?
Oh please tell me why Amanda Rose knows 50 ways to prove he's in love with you? How come this chick knows. Or more like how come this chick gets paid to make up stuff and do random google searches for useless facts?
Further more how come men are not writing these articles? Wouldn't they know most of all how their minds operate? Women's mags tend to try and add like 1 'men's point of view' page to appease this query.

Why we keep buying these publications is beyond me. The big titles are usually dumb stuff like how to turn him on, how to be sexy, figure out what he's thinking. If this is a women's magazine why is half the content about getting, keeping and pleasing a man? I think a bunch of men should start their own magazine giving advice for women cuz clearly its a hot commodity. Hire the usual fashion consultant, nutrionist and ob-gyn for pertinent stuff and the rest, just have at it. Tell us why we are still single, tell us where to meet 'good' men, give us catchy pick up lines......hold a sec are these topics in men's magazines?
Lets look at a random GQ cover ...nope nothing about where to meet wife material. We have some celeb interviews, gadget reviews, fashions, and just a little subtitle about looking at pics of sexy girls. Looks like some good reading to me....maybe i'll subscribe to GQ lol

Let's look at a woman's i went to google cosmo covers and saw this trend i had to screen capture. Every other cover has the word sex bolded and enlarged..... and we have topics like between his thighs, 3 signs he's about to cheat (like this is universal!), his biggest sex secrets (hmm i wonder what chick wrote that), Is he normal down there (isn't that his problem?).  Oh this one from Glamor sounds good why he didn't friend you on Facebook (do tell!)

So after watching Miss Representation I wonder if it is that the big bad media is so controlling or if we have just brain washed ourselves. These magazines strive because we buy them, we write for them...what am i missing? Don't get me wrong there are some women's magazines that are about women stuff, not as popular clearly. In the meantime stop buying the dunce ones that tell you things you already know! Im just saying lol.

Geez I've been quiet eh? Dont worry frequent posts are back again....well frequent enough... ok imma get this thing back up and running ya?!  But on real my computer's being a real behind! And I had a writing obligation that i no longer have *back to writing for me* 

Yes now shall we begin with the most bias post ever? Yes lets proceed.

I have not listened to every album released this year so I say this with no authority.....
21 by Adele was the best album of 2011!!
*drops confetti* She deserves all 6 grammys! I done talk!
*breaking news 21 is the biggest selling UK album of the 21st century* Numbers dont lie!!

I began my love affair with this amazing woman after I heard her first ever track Chasing Pavement. I had to know who, what, why and where, you I'm a lyrics woman! After hearing the first track of 21 'Rolling in the deep' i almost fell out my chair i was so ready for this album. Then I heard her track by track explanation...gahhhh sheer genius! Dear Sir who broke this chick's heart I hope you enjoy this constant reminder of your stupidity! Please walk with me as I share my fav tracks on this album of the year.
Rolling in the Deep
Her screw you life was good over here, you blew it, go about your way young sir song!
Fav verse
'Throw your soul through every open door
Count your blessings to find what you look for
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold
You pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow'

Turning Tables
My heart.... this woman put her foot in these songs eh? Anyways this song captures that feeling when you are in a relationship that just turns toxic and controlling. I dont know what to say man.... her voice is so clear and honest in this song I feel her literally choking in this song. Then she gets to the chorus 'I cant keep up with your turning tables under your thumb I cant breathe...' and u sit mellowed and kinda sad....
Fav verse
'Under haunted skies I see, ooh,
Where love is lost, your ghost is found,
I braved a hundred storms to leave you,
As hard as you try, no, I will never be knocked down'

Dont You Remember
*cue the tears* Whenever I hear this song I can just imagine someone standing in the rain crying at the door step of their used to be love asking 'dont you remember?' There's no pain like regret... dang lady you make grown people cry
Fav verse
'Why don't you remember?
Don't you remember?
The reason you loved me before,
Baby, please remember me once more,
When will I see you again?

Set Fire to the Rain
After hearing her reason behind writing this song I decided to make us kindred soul sisters, cuz she's all knowing and all feeling. Its the song about the rebound relationship, the kind that takes advantage of the weak minded. So she takes control and sets fire to the rain aka empowering herself by walking away, chasing pavements, setting fire to rain! Girl!
Fav verse
My hands they were strong, but my knees were far too weak,
To stand in your arms without falling to your feet,
But there's a side to you that I never knew, never knew.
All the things you'd say, they were never true, never true,
And the games you'd play, you would always win, always win.

One and Only

You know when you find that someone that you really want but they are apprehensive for whatever reason about being in a relationship? Yea well you can play this song to them. She just reassures aggressively with a touch of soul why you should give her a chance.
Fav verse
I don't know why I'm scared,
'Cause I've been here before,
Every feeling, every word,
I've imagined it all,
You'll never know if you never try,
To forget your past and simply be mine,

Someone like you
You are not human if this song didnt touch you in all kind of deep places *get your mind out the gutter!* What can I say she sings the fears of many an abandoned lover who shows up years later hoping to find their old flame there with open arms. Instead they are happy and settled, and you are alone and sad. Her performance at the Brit Awards ....... words cant begin to express the feelings she was going thru in front of millions, its like she feels this song more than the others.
Fav verse
Don't forget me
I beg
I remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead
Sometimes it lasts in love

*Warning this album has been known to cause extreme sadness....but dammit when last has some music touched you like that* 6 grammys...the oracle has spoken!!
